Rivers wind through earth, cutting down and eroding the soil for millions of years, creating a cavity in the ground 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep known as the Grand Canyon.
Home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals that have lived and evolved within its walls for millennia, the Grand Canyon is much more than just a hole in the ground. Follow a father and daughter as they make their way through the cavernous wonder, discovering life both present and past.
Weave in and out of time as perfectly placed die cuts show you that a fossil today was a creature much long ago, perhaps in a completely different environment. Complete with a spectacular double gatefold, an intricate map and extensive back matter.

I am an Arizona native and have visited the Grand Canyon only once ( I know I know… who am I?) The Grand Canyon by Jason Chin is an elaborate story of the life of the Grand Canyon and is one of the best guides on the market. This book offers a beautifully laid out exploration of a father and daughter on a hike through the Grand Canyon.
